The Pittsburgh Steelers have enjoyed a ton of success during their tenure in the NFL.
With that comes a rabid and loyal fan base, and sometimes uncontrolled expectations.
The Steelers are 6-5 after a narrow loss to the Browns Sunday, and that rabid fan base is getting nervous.
The Steelers are used to winning a certain way, and as safety Ryan Clark told the Post-Gazette, may be a bit “entitled.”
“You lose one game in Pittsburgh and the sky is falling, it’s just part of the culture,” safety Ryan Clark said. “It’s part of winning six Super Bowls, it’s part of being 12-4 three of last four years. We’re a spoiled bunch and overall we’ve become entitled. But you can’t be entitled, you can’t walk into places and just think because you’re the Pittsburgh Steelers you’re going to win.
“We need to execute and we haven’t been executing. Do we need to win next week? Without a doubt. We would have needed to win next week had we won this game.”
The Steelers will be fine, if they can somehow get everyone healthy.
How quick that can happen, I’m not sure.
